flexible president obama's red line in syria can be, kind of like a twizler. the white house has stepped back from an immediate course of action. the president said he needed more time to make his case. >> obama: i have to make sure i have the facts. and if we end up rushing to judgment without hard effective evidence, then we can find ourselves in the position where we can't mobilize the international community to support what we do. >> michael: getting more hard evidence night not be such a bad idea. anybody remember the phantom weapons of mass destruction george w. bush used to justify invading iraq? well joining me is who served as senior advisor to ambassador richard holbrooke, the special representative to afghanistan and pakistan. he is currently dean of the school of advanced international studies at johns hopkins university and is the author of the new book "the dispensable nation: american foreign policy in retreat". i even have a copy right here. welcome into "the war room," vali nasr. it does seem like a spectacularly good read given your experience. le

i think one of the reasons why obama went after these high profile things, like air travel and white house tours is because he wanted to try to prove that we just couldn't live without big government. but the irony now is that with the sequester has shown is yes, we can, in fact, live without big government and big spending and secondly, that government is completely screwed up at all levels. they can't set appropriate priorities. there is no common sense in government at all. >> well, look, i don't disagree that we have big problems with our government. we need to rein in spending, taxes, entitlement. we just can't afford big government or bad government. but monica, i think it's actually something a little worse. if i can be so bold. i think the obama administration thought that the sequester would be blamed on the republicans, more pain, more problems for the republicans. it's actually, according to the polls, backfired on the administration and that's why i think there has been some movement towards accommodation from the president and the white house towards reaching a deal. bot

chuck hagel said the obama administration is rethinking its opposition to arming syrian rebels and has said the white house has not made a final decision. in other words, how do you feel about this? it comes after the white house told lawmakers if believes syria used chemical weapons on its own people but they're not sure. that's what they said last week. president obama said that be a game-changer, which has not changed. jennifer griffin at the pentagon. what is the context here? is this a big deal or offhanded remark or what? >> well, shepard, no. i think he actually indicated where the white house and the pentagon -- where their thoughts are right now. the white house and pentagon are essentially looking at three options. they're looking to set up a no-fly zone, or limited air strikes or arming the rebels or in combination. defense secretary hagel said, standing next to the british defense secretary, gave an indication which way the white house and pentagon are leaning. >> you are rethinking -- the administration is rethinking its opposition to arming the rebels. >> yes. >> today, a

or by their campaign managers, that -- like, that's not going to change. and president obama can't do that. the one thing that i think maureen makes a good point about, though, it's worth the white house paying attention to this, is that the president should never say i've done everything i can do. because nobody ever has. right? there's always more to do, there's always more to try and you can never be seen as kind of throwing up your hands and saying, well, it's all on them. and i'm done. and i think that that's kind of the -- the one sort of maybe even stylistic mistake that the president made in the press conference or he's making now, is that -- he needs to give people more that they can do, and he needs to keep doing more himself, and the republicans and stephanie is absolutely right, mitch mcconnell bears more of this blame than the president does but we ought to just keep talking about it. we ought to just keep pushing at it, and i think the president can never say it's -- you know, it's up to you guys now. he always has to have some new activity that he and other people can do to keep tryi
